June 12: Diubrovnik, Coatia More Balkan Dances

June 12: Afternoon.  Dubrovnik, Croatia: We were now strolling in the Old Walled City

Old walled city of dubrovnik

when Judith spotted a poster announcing an evening of Folk Dances.  Some of us bought tickets in the Old City and after a light dinner al fresco, on a balmy evening, we walked outside the walls and along the harbor a little way to a collection of ancient stone buildings.  One of these, which lacked a roof, was an auditorium in which we saw 24 dancers brilliantly perform similar kolos and czardas, this time dressed in colorful ethnic costumes.  Between their dances, 12 male musicians played and sang while the dancers changed costumes for the next number.  The dances and lively music were memorable, another treasure to cherish from this trip to the Balkans.  Merry Lee Eilers.
